The 21st century has ushered in game-changing technological advances that have transformed the way we learn, live, and work. New technologies, global competition and communication, social networking, and the accelerated growth of knowledge have given rise to an increasingly interconnected world that calls for different learning opportunities and newly designed instruction. As educators, how can we prepare students to succeed and thrive in this rapidly evolving, technology-rich, global community? This action tool defines the skills and knowledge that students need for the 21st century and provides tools that you can use with any content to help teach and reinforce those skills. Based on the work of the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, the framework for 21st century learning described in this action tool is built on a foundation of academic subject knowledge that students apply through the essential skills of critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation, communication, and collaboration. Use the instructional planning tools to design a well-rounded set of learning opportunities that integrate the important aspects of 21st century literacies into your lessons. Then choose from 45 ready-to-use classroom tools to help students learn and practice the 21st century skills in any content area. Each tool includes step-by-step instructions, suggestions for integrating technology, and reflection questions that promote students' metacognition. To teach 21st century skills is to teach students a process of thinking about what they are learning. The goal is for students to think independently about content and seek answers to their own questions. The tools and activities in this book can help you guide students through a variety of models and processes that allow them to make analytical thinking routine. With these methods, you ensure that each new generation of learners is equipped for the world of their future rather than the world of our past.

This book defines the concept and practices of literacy through a discussion of knowledge, information media, culture, subjectivity, science, communication, and politics. Examining the ways in which the spread of literacy and education have caused culture wars in pluralist societies since the 16th century, the author reviews an interdisciplinary array of scholarly literature to contend that science, and more broadly evidence-based inductive arguments, offer the only reliable source information, and the only peaceful solution to cultural conflict in the 21st century. With a focus on the multifaceted practice of literacy-as-communication as embedded within larger social and political processes, this book offers a comprehensive study of literacy through five core topics: knowledge, psychology, culture, science, and arguing over truth in pluralist democracies. The central thesis of the book argues that we require a new literacy that incorporates reading and writing with advanced cognitive and epistemological skills. Today’s citizens need to be able to understand the basic cognitive and cultural processes through which knowledge is created, and they need to know how to evaluate knowledge, peacefully debate knowledge, and productively use knowledge, for both personal decisions and public policy. How Do You Know? The Epistemological Foundations of 21st Century Literacy is an interdisciplinary study that will appeal to scholars across the sciences and humanities, especially those concerned with pedagogy and the science of learning.
